#NobodyKnows: Q&A with Bethany Elstone
As part of our #WeAreNobodys campaign (because it takes a group of Nobodies to be a somebody) we’ve teamed up with blogger and photographer Bethany Elstone. Really get to know this like-minded cutie, from her secret skills (soon to be not-so-secret) to what she’s obsessing over RN!
How would your friends describe you?
In the words of @livblankson, “Agony aunt (best advice giver), visionary and the best cheekbones.” Ain’t she the sweetest?
Did photography start out as a side hustle?
Actually, photography came first! I started studying it when I was 14/15 years old at school and I’ve followed it in one way or another in almost every job I’ve had since.
Who are you obsessing over on Insta right now?
What advice would your older-self give your younger-self?
To not cut my hair short because I’d spend years growing it back and hating every moment. To care less about how I want to look and instead accept myself for how I am. The last point is something I feel really passionately about because we live in a world where we generate our own ideals of how society sees us. It’s important to know not to measure ourselves against anything but the person we were yesterday and to never compare yourself to the people you see online.
What’s your fave (secret) location to shoot right now?
I don’t think it’s a secret, to be honest no location stays secret once it’s posted on IG. But my favourite location I’ve shot this year is Rye Beach.
When did you first meet Nobody’s Child?
I discovered Nobody’s Child on Instagram a few years ago now! I always loved their designs, they’re eye catching but super wearable and affordable, the best mix.
What makes you smile?
There She Goes by The La’s, finding ANOTHER oversized blazer in a charity shop and tofu curry from Wasabi (I’m obsessed).
Tell us something #NobodyKnows…
I can rap Busta Rhymes verse in Look At Me Now and quite a lot of other fast tracks! I guess talking too fast in English class when we had to read out loud had its advantages in the end.
